Apart from being rather windy today I'm also in some discomfort from my untreated bladder stones (at least I'm assuming that's what's causing the pain), so sitting in front of my computer a few minutes ago I saw this "image" which involved me in very little effort. Strangely it's related to yesterdays composite image, the numbers in the rectangles are the last three digits of the file numbers of the images taken yesterday showing how I intended to lay them out for the composite. Maybe tomorrow I'll reveal the origin of the shadow given that I leave my desk and computer as untidy as they normally are.

Since I'm set for the light background I can't see my change of habit, that is I normally put a black border on my images, here I've used white. Perhaps some of you can see it if you use a dark background and never realised I use a black border, what a funny world.

The tiny soprano cigar box ukulele that I was working on during the April challenge is finally complete. I let it hang on my drying rack for a couple weeks or so to let the finish cure, and the strings I ordered just arrived yesterday. This instrument is truly tiny, far smaller than any instrument I've built or even held.

That's why I use a grey border :).

C'mon Tony, let's hear a couple of strums from this beauty (you can also sing along)
... it's made to be heard, not only to be looked at, isn't it. ;)

My newest toy arrived: a Nikkor-O 35/2 ai converted. Bought it from a Japanese dealer who was easy to deal with. DHL? Not so much... So anyway, today's image is a family picture of the Nikkor manual focus lenses. Small group but good stuff.

Nikkor H 28/3.5
Nikkor O 35/2
Nikkor SC 50/1.4
Nikkor P 105/2.5
Nikkor Q 135/3.5
Same hood works for the tele's and every one's got caps.

It's obvious to me that your instruments, in terms of fit and finish, are top notch. Very beautiful. Do they play and sound as good as they look? If they do, do you sell them?

Asking for a friend...

Cheers,

A cloudy daily with sporadic rain drizzles here in southern Oregon, but I managed to get out of the house for a small stroll. In the rural area where I live, the sidewalk goes over the creek of a local river; some years back, an inebriated local driver crashed into the bridge spanning the creek and demolished it. A new bridge - technically a pedestrian walkway - was built subsequently, in shiny metal, with orange posts at either end, presumably as a deterrent to delinquent bicycle racers. I took a few photos but this closer shot was the one I liked the most.

Taken with the wide angle conversion lens on my GR II, which widens the FOV from an already wide 28mm to positively yawning 21mm, using the camera's pre-baked Positive Film setting, and its not-all-that-macro 'macro mode'.
 
So, after an unexpected visit from the muse that haunted my early April, this time acting as Art Director ("More light there. Not that much. I think maybe move it to that side. Can you separate that shadow more. Wait, I think it's better where we started..."), I went out again hunting for Street Art for another thread. After wandering aimlessly for awhile, I caught an urban trailway and quickly came upon this image.

As much as I would love to subject you all to more "Fork Coronavirus!!", I went looking for street art and that's what I'll offer today.
